We considered it and it makes sense for us, but we NEED color for our
documentation (stereology and neuroscience applications). Until there's
color available,
we're sitting on the sidelines.

As is, we are no longer shipping a printed manual. Instead, it will be
an option for the
customer. If the customer wants a manual it will be a print-on-demand
item and shipped from the printer.
